I'm hopeful that I will be able to sleep tonight. I was mostly dizzy today and tried to stay off my feet. Called the doctor for an exam and the office was closed today. Will try again. I want to work on writing but can't really concentrate on that. I went shopping yesterday and found this purse. I really liked it because of the cell phone pocket-convenient. I was happy with my purse until my daughter saw it. "Oh no you won't wear that ugly purse," she said. "What's wrong with it?"
"Every thing," she said. Guess what I did? Yeah, I took it back. You see for about a year now I have been trying to leave the designer persuasion purses. You know to represent me and me only but no one will allow this to happen, my daughter, sales people, and friends. I went to a major department store and selected a nice leather bag and when I took it to the counter to pay for it the young sales girl said, "for the price you are paying for that bag, you might as well wear one with a name on it to represent," I ended up buying the designer one. So I tried it again. Then it was my daughter. What is the problem here? Why can't I wear a plain no name leather purse? The designer purses that I have now are in my closet, thousands of dollars and I am shame to say that, just sitting there, untouched, not needed, and making no kind of impact in my life what so ever. So when you see me at the purse counter-please let me buy the purse I want. I will not be a slave to designer's label.
Another thing-we have some talented people who can do many things, paint, sing, draw, write, build and design things, develop software-- well you get my point. Sometimes our brothers need that extra push to get their swing back, to get that positive, good feeling again. Right! I met this middle-aged man, very nice. He could really draw. I mean draw anything, free hand. You should see the picture he drew of me. Made me feel gorgeous. It looked identical of me. All I could say while looking at it was this...Is this really me? I was absolutely beautiful...well to make a long story short, he is a heavy drinker. He designed the cover of my other book, at least he stayed sober long enough to do it. When he saw the cover, he was amazed. "I did that!" He was too excited. Then he said, "I'm not using any of the skills God gave me and I should be ashamed." After that he brought many of his works to my office to see, absolutely amazing. Well, please pray for him, I heard he is drinking again. I have posted the cover of the book for you to see, but trust me, he did this coming out of a binge. Think about what he could do if he would let the bottle go. Please pray for the brother, he has mad skills.... Lesson today is this-God gave all his children mad skills, it is up to us to embrace them, share them with others and to use them to our fullest ability-Question-What are your skills? Are you using them to your ability? You be the judge.
